Our Philosophy

Excellence in patient care, honesty and consistency

Our philosophy is simple: We treat you like we would our own family members.  We believe in three main things: Excellence in patient care, honesty and consistency.  This philosophy translates to a patient-centered experience at Mariwalla Dermatology. We start with the simple things like sending your prescriptions electronically to your pharmacy for you so you don’t have to wait, working with specialty pharmacies to make sure your co-pay is as low as possible, and writing everything down so you won’t forget any instructions.  We offer unique services like photodynamic therapy for pre-cancers, patch testing for contact dermatitis and antigen therapy for warts.

Mariwalla Dermatology is also one of the only practices on Long Island where you are not shuttled off to a surgeon if you have the diagnosis of a skin cancer.         Dr. Mariwalla, Dr. Kruter and Dr. Bacigalupi are fellowship-trained Mohs surgeons, and will take care of your skin cancer – complete care from start to finish. At Mariwalla Dermatology, the aesthetic consultation is also a little different.  You can expect an honest opinion from our physicians who believe their patients should look refreshed, not frozen.  They understand that a true aesthetic experience is built on trust and for that privilege our physicians only offer procedures that they feel truly work like CoolSculpt, Aerolase and injectables. 

And finally, with five providers who work as a team, you can expect consistency, excellent care and an experience that will make you want to come back.  Dr. Mariwalla takes the practice of skin care seriously and will make sure you receive the care you deserve.  Having been part of the West Islip community for 30 years through her parents (both physicians in the area), she understands the importance of the physician-patient relationship.
